Prairie Style..or just plain cozy..

                           Who Says you can't have Prairie......

                                  In our modern bungalow I like to change
                                        our living space into a cozy retreat!

                     Our formal living room with the cherry wood wall unit..
                             Cherry wood end tables and coffee table
                                     take on a country look as soon as
                                        I add on the dropcloth slips to
                                                       my sofas.

                            Lots of comfy down pillows of all sizes...

                                        A colourful quilt thrown over a parlour chair.


                                  A rustic bird, white daisies in a metal pail
                                        some great magazines, a birds nest
                                             some moss balls all on a rustic
                                                gray wicker tray.

                             Now that says style....
                                      Prairie Style....
                                         just country!!!!

                  I also change up my kitchen table centre piece with a vintage dough bowl
                               then I add the following
                              a white pitcher with white hydrangeas
                                white long tapered candles
                                   some colourful transferware
                                      a small soup tureen filled with ivy
                                and added a touch of whimsy  with pretty napkins.

      The drop cloth table runner stays as well as the ruffled drop cloth chair cushions
                                     for the cozy french, prairie style feel.

                                                          GET THE LOOK!

                                     LAYER, FLOWERS, TEXTURE, PLAY

                                                  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love the look Linda! I love the slipcovers and the drop cloth runner and chair covers. Your dining room looks amazing - just like a country farmhouse! Pam

  2. I like the new slipcovers you added to the sofas. You will enjoy being able to wash those too. Your kitchen has a lot of charm with the blue and white transferware and the white linens.

  3. You have definitely got that cozy look! It looks so pretty!

  4. Everything looks so pretty Linda...very cozy!!

  5. What a warm cozy room, I love those slipcovers!

  6. Did you make the slipcovers? Oh my!!! I've been wanting to make one for my sofa, but am afraid to even get started.
    Your prairie style is really coming together. I'm so envious of that great dough bowl!!

  7. Looks fabulous Linda! Thanx for sharing at THT.

  12. I am so sorry, Fergus, that I mistakenly called you Angus! Don't dig-up your Mommie's garden…. ;P

  13. Very pretty, Linda! I like the slips and how they let your more traditional pieces and accessories stand out. That quilt is lovely.
